LEGO: NO ONE WANTS AN ARMY OF PIRATE CAPTAINS!!!!!
the gold bricks look amazing, will definitaley be getting a bunch of them, unless its a magnet. id like to make a castle out of gold bricks because my new brickwars castle hero is a gold lego,torso,sword, and crown man who could despratly use a nice castle to protect him.
the pirate bank looks awesome, though id take the squid and flag off for customizing.
the tic tac toe looks awesome, but it better not be 20$ or ill get mad. 15$ is bad enough. id REALLY buy alot if it were 10$. i already spent like 25 on cannon battles as if they were battle packs. oh well. cannons are always nice.
the bank looks weird... like a tubawear thing, not a bank! TLG has made better banks, u know, the ones that actually look like bricks....

- I like it, they should have done it before!
- But why did they choose a rare minifig instead of one from the common #375/383/677 sets? (This torso with this helmet only came in the Castle Mini-Figures set.)
- This was released in 1979, not 78!
- OK, blue, we've all expected it since the previous volumes offered the other colours.
- Same issue as previous releases: the helmet is the wrong one, they lost the moulders, etc.
- Yeah! excellent choice, it's a significant minifig in Lego's history -- at least more than postmen or chefs!
- It's a nice design that could match recent sets (e.g. SPIII).
- Good choice as well as a significant step in the Castle line.
- I read two years ago that Lego wouldn't produce plumes due to high costs. Then they made a new version last year (e.g. in the Medieval Market). They they will produce this one, I am happy that they finally decided to offer plumes!
- A city minifig is expected, so here you are!
- This one is pretty and can be added to a modern city.
So, I will probably buy this set, even if I didn't buy the previous volumes. Will see...

I suppose I'd have to sell a crapload of monkeys, parrots and that other pirate's torso on bricklink at deep discounts
I'm glad we're getting the Lego games... any word on whether or not we're getting the other ones?
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

What ills might those be?
Not so happy that all the classic spacemen are appearing in the vintage minifigure packs :(
So many other classic figs they could have picked instead :(
I, for one, am thrilled. But just to be objective, let's recap:
Collection 1: space (1), town (3), studio (1)
Collection 2: space (2), town (1), pirates (1), ninjas (1)
Collection 3: space (1), town (1), pirates (1), castle (1), wild west (1)
Collection 4: space (2), castle (2), town/holiday (1)
So out of 20 figs, we're looking at:
5% wild west
Admittedly, space and town fans have no reason to complain, but there's no reason to think that other themes won't get their due in time. What is so drastically under-represented?

Now if only Lego would release theme specific collections.

the BP is not suitable for bulk buying...imagine....if you buy ten ....you get ten birckbeard....ten monkey.....forming monkey armies?
and that reminds me the troll impulse set.
buy 10 troll impulse and you get ten troll + 10 mice.....man....what can i do with that ten mice? served as food?
also each side of the BP only got one single weapon. pirate got a pistol and imperials got one musket.
so how about the govenor and the brickbeard? using the flag to wheck each other?

“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

Hopefully the Tic-Tac-Toe set will be a better deal because there is no point to buying the so-called BP.

But the variety of the town figures has been much more expansive than the spacemen, who are, in essence, the exact same figure in different colors. Town got a policeman, fireman, gas-station attendant, mailman, chef, and Santa. Space got red guy, white guy, black guy, yellow guy, blue guy. I think that's why space seems so repetative. Personally, I think the blacktron guy is a nice change of pace for space.

I am thinking the exact same thing because it would be nice to get it once but you dont need loads of monkeys and treasure chests, sometimes we just want to build an army. Anyway the pirate tic tac to is also nice,(again for the figures). I think the vintage minifigure collection is good but ive never got one before and i find them unnessecery for my collection. The little santa set is nice if you just want the figure.

It seems that the pirate line is the center of all the attention these days... one game and a battlepack !
These are all great news..
Thanks for the head up Alywin
